Bartholomew, United Press vice president, a member of the partv, tells in the following dispatch what ihey saw. i By FRANK H. BARTHOLOMEW Bikini Island, July 3—(UP)—A party of correspondents today inspected the awrul devastation unleashed by the atom bomb on tar-' get ships in Bikini lagoon. I We visited the U. S. heavy cruiser Pensaeola, which was" badlv damaged but still floating, and xhe lormor German cruiser Prims Ku- fien, which suffered superficial damage only. The Pensaeola, whose bridge was 2riQ yards from the uridge ol the target ship Nevada, was a charred and blistered shambles above water. No one was allowed below the decks. Numerous areas on the deck were ringed with red nann marked: "warning—radioactive.' "I would estimate that iopstdc casualties — had the ship been manned—would have been 100 aer cent," said Capt. D. J. Ramsay, Heckling, Mass. "Below decks, casualties would have been about 50 per cent although boilers and engines were intact and -ammunition diet lot o.x- plode," he said. Both t h e Pensacola's great stacks were crumpled and blown parallel to the decK in a direction opposite to the blast. The open deck area between them was blown downward four feet. OaK planking on the ::orfdecks was reduced to ashes as -was a pile of tin cans. Food >'rom the ens was blown out and burned. "That's army quartermaster's gear," Capt. Ramsay explained. "U was spread out on the deck for the test. "tonal was it? I don't know—just a bunch of junk. If they hadn't umped it here, we wouldn't nave had this much of a i'ire " the forth-right captain added. The only thing the Army appeared to .nave 'saved was a stack of snowshoes on the alter decs; which was intact. The ship creaked dismally as we trudged through the ashes and rubble :Crom -stem to- stern. The S50-foot-long Prinz Eugen is best described by her captain, A. H. Graubart. "It looks like a hurricane had passed over her with a blowtorch " he said. Damage was confined to broken masis, tumbled aerials and a general scorching. • Crewmen were washing radioactive particles from her deck with a high-pressure -hose while we were aboard. Between the Eugen and the Pen- saeola, we passed over the sunken cruiser Sakawa. Bikini island, which we inspected next, showed no damage at all All Army, and Navy photographic and experimental towers were intact, including a wooden tower on the beach facing the lagoon nearest the bullseye. No palm trees were blown down. The officers' club, which had been relieved of its paper roof before the blast, reopened today to receive Army and Navy officers an correspondents. We were at first cautioned against swimming on accounl of the radioactivity, but just as we were leaving we received word that the water was safe.

Any doubts the Japanese-Americans had about how the home folks would welcome them was dispelled yesterday when the Wilson Victory, the ship carrying the Nisei, wheeled into the Hudson river. Harbor craft greeted them with long blasts on their whistles and airplanes overhead dipped in salute.

I Believe .. 0 ABOUT THE SOUTH I am a Southerner, and like you, prone! nf tha South's traditions, manners and customs. We lire not called upon to apologize for lhi> Houtlrs unsatisfactory ranks in income and educational opportunities but we are called on tu rubo them. ABOUT SOUTH ARKANSAS and FUNDAMENTALS: You and I believe in individual Initiative, free enterprise, and property, includin:,' everything which can be called "my own": houses, automobiles, money, family repulatlcn, rights and duties. We have never doubted that what we have of prosperity i.s tho result of all of us at work in the schools, churches, fuctork'.i, farms, sawmills, rclir.eries, stores and offices ot South Arkansas. V/e have the right Institutions. Wo must go forward in them by means of: better schools, which inevitably mean; better pay for teachers; inert small business and factories, with emphasis on those based on South Arkansas' natural resources alul agriculture — canning, dehydration/ quick freeze, for example; fnrm-to-markct roads; and drainage. ABOUT AGRICULTURE: I am In favor of (1) the Soil Conservation Service; (2) a clear cut division of activities between the State and Federal agricultural Ear- vices which will eliminate overlapping and increase efficiency; (3) Federal assistance in drainage and farm-to-market roads; 14; encouragement of farm 'labor to return to tho farm; (5) continued assistance by agnuuliural agencies in the transfer of hill farms tu livestock, dairying, vegetables and timber. A BOUT GOVE RN MENT AND BUSINESS: I believe the rightful object of government Is "to do for a connr.unity of people whatever they need to have done but cannot do for themselves." Government aid is good only il ;c eventually increases production. No uovern- inent should interfere with business e:ccept to preserve competition where it is not destructive; to conserve irreplaceable natural resources; to insure fairness and rcspunslbility between competitors in business and between management and labor. Most of the present controls are emergency controls and must not be retained beyond the emergency. Our prosperity lies in the direction of work and increased production rather than in the direction of curtailment, scarcity and subsidy. Inflation can best t-e checked Uy ticttina luoro goods on the market. orm of for Congress AROUT LABOR: 1 believe in the dignity of labor and its right to organize. Both labor and capital aru indispensable lo produclion. I favor a fair balance between them. If the middle mail swings to ihe rigni we are threatened with Fascism, if to the left with ix collectivism which labor wants no tno.'e than management. ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT AND THE PEOPLE: Our federal government Is cumbersome with bureaus, overlapping committees and an inel- ficicnt Congress. It needs to be more economical, more effective, and more democratic. We must cut down the field of administrative law and restore the prime administration of justice and equity to our established courts. At the same time we would reduce the number of government corpdnitions. which wield great power, over Congress. It i.s the people's responsibility to assume the privilege of government and the duty ol those elected lo do tho will of the people. AliOUT THE ARMY AND .VETERANS ; Among proposed Army reforms I believe in wiping out abuses o.' officer privilege, in Uio j-uvumplny of courts martial. 1 favor strengthening the loan and housing provision of ihe Ol Bill of Rights so that veterans can really get loans to buucl homes. Veterans' problems should be concentrated in the Veterans Administration. Peace time conscription should be avoided by: (a) a larger volunteer army with increased pay for enlisted men; (b) the building of a largo reserve by use on a voluntary basis of the American Legion plan for military training of young men in successive summers; (c). effort', toward iuternaUonui abolilion of conscription through UNO. ABOUT WORLD AFFAIRS I am for support cf the United Nations Organization and moves toward the abolition of the unilateral veto (the power of one of tho big five to block the majority will) in tho security council; support of the struggle of all peoples for freedom; national effort to relieve world famine; the loan to Britain as a means of avoiding economic warfare with our best customer; a firm but friendly attitude toward Kus&ia; continued effort to unify China as a friendly ally; increased world trade by moans of lowered tariffs ami the use ol trade nients.

Ewing Mays, and abstractor in the land commissioner's office, and Ike Murry, chief assistant attorney general who was a ^chicf yeoman in the Seabees. There are other .former enlisted men on the stale payrolls out not in the higher salary brackets. And, speaking of such, only one of the five ex-servicemen -seeking a congressional seal wound up the war as -an enlisted nvm. l*'ive of the seven reporters assigned regularly or part time lo slalehouKc and political coverage by the press associations and newspapers a r c cx-scrviecmcn.

O'BRIEN Written for NEA Service Head injuries increase as the •accident toll rises. The success of modern head injury treatment depends upon (he '-o-opei-atinn of the patient's family and, as he becomes conscious, of me puiieui himself. Experience acquired by the military services during the war has produced more effective means of treating head injuries and of predicting their outcome. The scalp, skull, or bra:n may be involved in a head injury, ' Scalp wounds, while they appear serious at the time of the accident, heal more readily than do injured tissues elsewhere in the body. The lack of scalp 'sensation which follows a injury has a tendency to disappear (severe complicating infections do occur in occasional cases, however). The base of the skull is the easiest portion to fracture, since the dome is more elastic. When a piece of broken skull bone separates and presses on the brain", it is necessary to operate 'n order to lift the piece up. In penetrating injuries of the skull and brain, the foreign material which is introduced must be removed before healing will occur. BRAIN INJURIES SERIOUS Brain injuries are the most serious variety of head trauma, whether the skull is fractured or not. The injury may result in a jar (concussion), swelling (edema i, bleeding (hemorrhage), or a tear. In concussion. the patient is temporarily rendered unconscious/ On recovery, he may vomit, complain of dizziness, and feel shaky for a time, then snap out of it. In more extensive injuries oT the brain, consciousness returns more slowly, requiring hours, clays, or WCCKS. Many victims 01 head injuries arc able to feed themselves, carry on a conversation, and drive a car without remembering anything. Keep close watch over those who have sustained head injuries, to prevent further accidents. In addition to brain damage, the nerves which are attached to the base of the brain may be injured, resulting in difficulty with vision, hearing, or moving the muscles of tho face. EXPERT NURSING. NEEDED Head injury patients require expert nursing care. In the early stages, treatment of shock may be more important than direct care of the head injury. The victim of a head injury should be moved carefully, to avoid further injury. He should be kept in bed until all signs of increased pressure in the skull have disappeared, .as this is the best way to combat the headache and dizziness which develop if the patient gets up too soon. Ice bags placed on the head are soothing, but sedatives should be UE-ed with great caution. Patients may move about in bed while still unconscious, but they should not be allowed to pet out of bed. The result of a head injury depends upon the amount of permanent brain damage sustained. Military experience indicates that many mental changes which follow head injuries eventually disappear under rehabilitation management. Question: We have been married two years, but have not been able to have a child. Is there anything we can do to correct this condition? Answer: You and your husband should be' examined to determine the cause of your sterility. If nothing can be done to help you or your husband, you should consider the possibility of adopting a child.

JUST SETTLING DOWN ., YoL1 two kids arc Just going through the sellling down process which is a parl of every marriage, and you are hurl and bewildered because you didn'l realize that it was bound to happen to you, as it does lo everyone else, and so you arc: unprepared for it. You are finding out that lovemaking can pall upon you; that you can get fed up on kisses; that you can get bored to death when you have too much of any one per- -cn's society, and that romance anishes like mist in the sun when you have to come down to the prosaic necessity of cooking meals and washing dishes. And you are discovering, to your amazement, that you really know each other as liltla as if you were perfect strangers, and thai each of you has little ways and habits that get on the other's nerves. You can't keep on thrilling to the sound of a footslep lhat you hear all day long. Nor does a bread and butler kiss have Ihe flavor of a stolen one. And you can't get the kick out of bringing home a mess of pork chops that you did out of presenting Sweetums with an orchid. But that is no sign that your marriage has gone on the rocks after only a month's duration. It is just thai you two are breaking in your marriage as you would a pair of new shoes and you will never really enjoy il until it gets loose and easy .and comfortable All happy marriages finally turn inlo a beautiful friendship. Dear Miss Dix: I have worked for the past four years since my husband "has been in the Army. Now he is about to return home and he insists upon my giving up my job so I can devote all my time lo him. But he has no money saved and no .certainly of employment, so I hesitate to relinquish my posi-- lion until our future is more settled. What should I do? x BEWILDERED WIFE ANSWER: Get your employer to give you a week off that you may devote lo welcoming your husband back home and pampering him and feeding him on the food he likes. By the end of that time in all probability you and he will have talked to each other and he will be glad not to have you concentrate all of your time and attention upon him. .But don't be foolish enough to give up your job. Hang on to that with both hands until he gets established in some settled way of making a living. He is probably under the delusion that good jobs are just waiting around to be picked up, whereas they are scarce as hens' teeth. Dear Dorolhy Dix: What should an engaged girl do with her diamond engagement ring when her fiance has been reported missing or killed? MARJORIE ANSWER: She should keep it as a precious souvenir of her lost sweetheart. It is what he would surely wish her to do. And it belongs to her by every right of love ' and custom.
